Forum: GratefulDead Subject: The Tuscaloosa show

I’ve been listening to a lot of GD shows in the last years, and again and again I discover a new gem, versions of certain songs that are even better than ones I have heard before, special sets and much more…Well, now I came across 5-17-77! It’s not mentioned here that much, because of all the other more famous may shows from 77, and june, october, november (some of you know that 77 IS my favourite year…) It does have the famous Jack-A-Roe, an outstanding Jack Straw, I could go on, there isn’t a flaw there, even songs I’m not crazy about, like Passenger, Samson, Good Lovin’, are good! Well and most of the others are very good!
“It's got a mellow groove throughout that just flows with ease and mastery.” (Grendelschoice)

For me this show is amazing, fantastic, great, not that there are only many good versions of songs here, most of them are just really great. And it’s a very good show for the Godchauxs, Keith is fantastic, sweet and flowing along, and Donna is doing a real good job, not off key, no screaming, she just fits in nicely. So I wonder, is it just me on this day who thinks this show is so good, what do you think? It’s interesting that it is played in Alabama, I don’t think that many shows were performed there, and - I’m not from the US - but I always got the impression that Alabama wasn’t flooded with Deadheads as much as the west and east coast (and other places, too), am I wrong?

Anyway, I really encourage you to listen to this show, there’s a fine version at GDLive with SugarMag (encore) missing, but you can add the AUD from the other site, and it fits very well, very good sound, too.


I’d appreciate some comments or thoughts…Sorry for not posting some photos on the photo thread, but for some reason I didn’t figure out how to do the attachments.

Perfect timing on this one as I popped in DP 3 on a road trip today and noticed it was 5/22/77. Will have to check out your Tuscaloosa show which was only a couple of days previous.

As an aside, I must admit I forget to go back to the shows pages and add reviews, I've gotten too lazy and rely on the Forum to post some winners to check out. No necessarily this show, but many others.

But! We all need to remember to go back to those show sites and add our 2 cents worth there too. Some of the classic shows are mentioned repeatedly in the Forum but still have reviews at the show page that are over 2 years old! If we like it (or otherwise) let's collectively agree to post an appropriate review!

Thanks for the tip! Now to find an AUD version!

Guten Morgen Günther...und Guten Picken...this is the kind of show I can listen to, close my eyes...and picture myself in a boat on a river with tangerine trees and marmalade skies...as you say, many good songs, my favourites, apart from the others, are terrapin, playin, wharfrat, reprise
...and as grendelschoice said in the preferred tempo thread, I like that sound Jerry got...
on the archive http://www.archive.org/details/gd77-05-17.sbd.weiner.18554.sbeok.shnf theres the bonus of Equinox (notes about here: http://www3.clearlight.com/~acsa/intro.htm)
Habe einen hellen glänzenden Tag ganges ( re: the photos...'didn’t figure out how to do the attachments indeed'...a man of your calibre!...you're just trying to maintain your aura of mystery!..like some others here ;-)
